5G network slices need to be assured - individually and at every stage of their lifecycle to ensure successful monetisation
5G network slicing brings new, differentiated services for operators and their B2B customers. Real-time active monitoring is essential to ensure SLA delivery and performance
Slicing demands flexible service orchestration and control to deliver optimised performance for mission critical and low latency services. Passive monitoring on its own cannot provide the requisite real-time assurance. Objective QoS measurements are required, in live networks, alongside the devices deployed by service users.
Flexible, agile service validation and active monitoring
Evolver enables functional and performance testing of slices before deployment, as well as active monitoring for in-service applications. It enables individual UEs to be emulated via active agents deployed in any slice. Different traffic scenarios can be modelled, with control of QFI parameters and SDP filters – capturing objective KPIs for QoS-differentiated services.
Traffic scenarios can be run dynamically, with pre-configured scenarios. Centralised control enables hundreds of sessions to be deployed in parallel, while flexible tools enable new scenarios to be created quickly and easily. Test results and KPIs are provided by API or reports to external tools.
